Fireworks - Be Courteous During This 4th of July Celebration

The celebration of America’s Independence is a long-held tradition, now often celebrated with food, family, friends and fireworks. Fireworks stands will be opening for business in the next few days when customers can purchase them between the dates of June 25th and ending at midnight on July 4th. In preparation for the upcoming Fourth of July, the Brown County Sheriff’s Office and the local fire departments wish to remind the public about the regulations concerning fireworks.

The Ainsworth City Ordinance states:

SECTION 9-402: PERMISSIBLE FIREWORKS: It shall be unlawful for any person to ignite or cause to be exploded fireworks or firecrackers of any description whatsoever, except sparklers, Vesuvius fountains, spray fountains, torches, color fire cones, star and comet type color aerial shells without explosive charges for the purpose of making a noise, color wheels, lady fingers not exceeding seven-eighths inch in length or one-eighth inch in diameter and which do not contain more than one-half grain each in weight of explosives, material. (Neb. Rev. Stat. §28-1241, 28-1244.)
